RBN House stands out from its surroundings as a sleek, modern residence that makes use of wood in a variety of ways. The house, designed by Kiev-based Workshop Grynevich Dmitriy, features a series of trendy statements, including a wooden pergola that continues down the side of the home to act as a huge screen.
The house is surrounded by a large garden which features wooden walkways, pebbled beds for shrubs and lush grass. The wooden deck on the ground floor offers the residents a partially sheltered space where they can relax and enjoy the outdoors. The slated wooden structure offers protection from the sun. Red and black-painted windows act as accents that remind of De Stijl and Gerit Rietveld’s designs.
Inside, casual furniture pieces create a laid back atmosphere. Natural light floods the open-plan living room, where wood is also prominently featured. The customized wooden decorative panel above the modern fireplace and a similar piece that holds the TV provide warmth and make the space look more cozy. Space-saving design features such as the storage space underneath the staircase add functionality to the building.
